News Spotlight How long is a piece of string? Competence in the workplace

‘Competence’ is a hazy concept. Many engineering firms now require that all contractors – on top of providing training and qualification records – evaluate the competency of all their staff. That’s a big ask, when competency seems like such a subjective asset. But, if done well, identifying required competencies for every role your people do can give employees a clear road-map of what’s expected of them, and an understanding of which of their talents are most valued.

Our Team

Bob Boughton

Bob Boughton

Project Supervisor


Bob became an Associate of QEM in March 2014 having spent the past few years working for both contractor and client on Wales & West Utilities projects. He is currently supervising the construction of Wetheral AGI for NGN.

Bob started his working life in the collieries of South Wales, working his way up from apprentice level to district overman. In 1980 he left mining for the gas industry, and since then has built up a wealth of experience in the supervision and management of pipeline and AGI construction and commissioning. 

Bob is a sports fan, confessing that these days he watches more than he plays although he does still enjoy a round of golf now and again. He loves to travel and has always had a keen interest in history, particularly the industrial revolution. One day Bob would like to combine these passions and follow the path that Victorian writer George Borrow took in his 1862 travel journal, Wild Wales.
